    Default JB rumor still alive

    i posted this a month ago but the bender & 17th pick to LA for george, slava, and a 2nd round pick is "supposedly" going to go down around the draft.

    hoopsworld.com is reporting this again and again over the past month and just put up a knew article today. i don't know much about the website but i do know they are based out of LA and accurately predicted the shaq to miami trade last year.

    personally, i hope LB & DW don't pull the trigger on this. there will be quality players at 17 this year and i still want to see JB when he's healthy (if that ever happens). i would hate to see him break out on another team.

    here's the link

    George is trash. Medvedenko is decent. We don't need a 2nd round pick.

    The article indicates it is a done deal.

    What am I missing. What is the upside of this besides just geting rid of Bender.

    Is this a precursor to other deals.

    I mean George is a nice player, he is a good defender and a decent standstill jump shooter. But will he beat out JJ for the backup minutes at small forward. Is George insurance for Ron, in case he goes off again or gets traded.

    Likely this trade is for contracts. Pacers won't have to pay the first round pick and Bender who has two years left will be gone.

    They are expiring contracts, allowing us to potentially make a Sheed-esque* trade at the deadline.

    *I use this as only as a very loose example as that sort of daylight robbery only happens very rarely. But there are usually good players on bad teams and expiring contracts are the best way to acquire them.

    If we don't have another "big" trade in store, I'm going to be pissed.

    Yeh if you add up the contracts of Pollard, Reggie, Slavo and George, that equals $19 M

    When I read the title to this thread I thought you were going to tell me they announced Jensen Button was done at Honda and had gone to Williams.

    Jonathan Bender is so useless in my mind that I had forgotten that he was even on the team.

    you add 2 contracts and subtact 1....assuming we keep DD and JJ that gives us 16.....something else would have to be done. Unless we have no intention of keeping BOTH JJ and DD.

    I still fear that if he ever gets healthy, he'll be a hell of a player

    We could give Artest the contract he deserves.

    (Should I really post that, yes why not)

    no, that's not even good either. Edwards is a FA too, we just don't talk about resigning him cuz we don't need to.

    I just don't like any of those players. We could get someone more useful at the 17. And even though I am lead enthusiast for the Get Rid of Bender club, I can't say we should do this.

    I used to think that. Now I dont and the reason was the game against the Kings where he played like the best player ever to play the game for 15 minutes. Then he bumped his shoulder into a Kings player and was out for the year. If he cant take a shoulder bump he will never last a season in the NBA.

    This is horrible, if plan on keeping these players for the year. If we are plannning on making a trade at the deadline with those 3 because of their contracts then okay. All 3 of those guys suck, especially Medvedenko damn I hate the guy, I really hope he isnt part of the deal.

    The Laker's would have to be putting JB through an intensely thorough physical before this trade went through. In which case, if they do accept it, it means JB is finally healthy. I know it is whether he can stay healthy that is the question, but the idea of this guy flourishing for the Laker's while we take on George and Slava is NOT appealling.

    Default A Bender Rumor...

    Mods- please move this post (or scold me) if this is in the wrong place...

    Got an email from a friend out in LA-

    "
    here's an update on the bender rumors. it's supposedly from a source within the pacer organization and it's very general but here's what i've heard:

    the source says all he knows is that "ALL" rehab has ceased on Bender because they are expecting him to be moved within a move involving the draft.


    the guy i got this from said the bold print is fact and the italics is speculation. if it is fact portion is correct than the speculation probably has merit.

    no word on if the deal is with the lakers or another team but it looks like bender will be dealt before or on draft day."

    Anyone heard anything on this?

    I think that the Bender supporters (myself included) are just afraid that it would be another JO-type situation. I really want to see him do well, only if its in a Pacers uniform.

    Yup. I'd rather him rot on our bench than become a star somewhere else.

    This really, truly pisses me off. It really does.

    You know, weren't we supposed to be getting trading to get rid of players, not add more players?
